Over the years, ERC has successfully fielded winning teams in all three divisions – Men’s, Women’s and Co-ed. Since the club’s formation in the 1980’s, ERC’s women’s team has been overall champion over a dozen times. The men have followed in close second, always a force to be reckoned with. Not so long ago, we formed our first co-ed team, which started off as a ragtag group of Bastards, but won their first overall championship in the Fall of 2006.

During the race season, practices are more intense than the relaxed rec rows. We practice three times a week; our idea of fun is winning the race first and then winning the party. We like to hold up the age-old tradition of whupping the competition and then buying them a beer.
